About Christian

Dr. Christian L’Orange is a Research Scientist in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Colorado State University. His work is focused around engineering for public health. Dr. L’Orange’s research projects include the development of low-cost, next generation pollution monitors for quantifying exposure to pollution and the evaluation and testing of the biomass cookstoves used by nearly 50% of the world’s population.

He completed his doctoral training at Colorado State University in the Department of Mechanical Engineering with a focus on solid fuel combustion, air pollution assessment, and the development of impact assessment tools. As a postdoctoral fellow, his research focused on the assessment of exposure to air pollution with an emphasis on particulate matter pollution. Dr. L’Orange has extensive experience in designing, conducting, and managing field studies and has worked in over a dozen countries including throughout Latin/South America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia.
